An Afternoon in Ronne: The Largest Village on Bornholm, Ronne, Denmark (B)

After three windy and rainy days, the weather was finally starting to look better, so last Thursday, I decided to go on my first trip that week after work. My teacher Rune gave me a lift to Rønne, the largest village on Bornholm, where I spent the afternoon sightseeing and hanging by the quaint harbour.

Rønne has a population of 13,700 people, which is approximately 35 % of the entire population on Bornholm. The village, which is the administrative center of Bornholm, is strategically located on the westernmost point of the island.

I really adore these quaint Danish provincial towns!
